The Collectiegebouw will store 75,000 European art works belonging to the city’s Museum Boijmans van Beuningen. While art depots typically hide unexhibited collections from view, visitors here will be able to witness a hive of backstage activity. Restoration, maintenance and transportation of the stored art will all take place within view of the public.

In 2018 Rotterdam will have the world’s first art storage facility that is fully accessible to the public. You can already experience what a visit to the extraordinary building by architect Winy Maas will be like:

They should use the same glass as the New York 9/11 Museum. It will be that reflective as intended.

I had the idea that those kind of problems could happen in big glass surfaces in general. But yeah, the one I must have remembered when I wrote here was that example, which doesn't apply here.

No risk of hot spots, but the bright reflections may be a problem to people living nearby.
Still an epic project though. City council has approved it and financing is in place, so it will be built
